USB-TC01 DAQ device

From National Instruments comes the USB-TC01, a USB DAQ device that measures and records temperature data from a thermocouple.

The USB-TC01 thermocouple measurement device features NI InstantDAQ technology, which helps customers to instantly take temperature measurements with no set-up time or driver software installation.

It features a standard miniplug connector that helps customers use different thermocouples to meet their specific application needs.

The USB-TC01 device offers instant setup for a range of temperature applications for use in scientific labs, heating, ventilating and air conditioning units; cryogenics; industrial ovens and furnaces; engine exhaust and combustion systems; and building monitoring.

In addition to saving time and resources in system setup, the new device also exhibits the overall accuracy and reliability of more complex measurement systems. With traditional stand-alone data loggers, measurements are made independently of the PC so data can only be viewed offline. The USB-TC01 is always connected to the PC so customers can take live measurements and view results displayed instantly on the PC monitor.

The basic functionality of the USB-TC01 can be expanded by downloading additional, free ready-to-run applications. For further customization, customers can build their own applications by combining the USB-TC01 with NI LabVIEW graphical system design software and NI-DAQmx driver software.
